Have any of you heard about this?
"On 7th August 1893, 22 people from Ystrad Rhondda were drowned at Aberavon in a boating accident on a Sunday school outing.
The party of 34 people had been invited on a boating trip by brothers William and John Bath. The boat was just 20ft long, 5ft 6in wide and 2ft 6ft deep, and would prove incapable of carrying its load, capsizing at the breakwater. The brothers were charged with manslaughter but were subsequently found not guilty".
